Malta Public Transport have released their new summer schedule, which will be starting on July 5 2020, with a total of 436 additional trips every day across the whole network.
Apart from this, there will also be a vastly increased bus capacity in order to cater for the increase in demand for public transport.
Additionally, several routes will be modified in order for them to stop near popular beaches during summertime.
These revisions for beaches include Route 49 to Għadira Bay also making stops at the nearby Armier Bay and Route 74 to Żurrieq also making stops at the magnificent Blue Grotto.
Route 101 to Ċirkewwa will also be stopping at Ġnejna Bay, with Route 109, intended to go to Baħrija, making stops at Għar Lapsi.
In the meantime, in Gozo, there are also some revisions due to the increase in demand for ferry trips, with Route 301 that goes from Victoria to Mġarr being increased in frequency.
The buses have had to undergo several changes throughout the last few months, yet now they seem to slowly returning to normal, particularly with the reintroduction of air conditioning, after the authorities made sure that Malta Public Transport conducted the necessary measures in order to guarantee the safety of the passengers.
Buses have also had restrictions on the amount of passengers on buses, with there being an extremely limited amount, as well as not allowing standing passengers on the buses, with the latter being revised on July 1, allowing between five and 15 standing passengers, according to the length of the bus.
The ban on standing passengers was introduced on March 13, when the COVID-19 pandemic was just starting to hit Malta.
